Week 6/8 of Learn Ruby the Hard Way

http://ruby.learncodethehardway.org/book/

We started a Summer reading sprint from Women Who Code & SF Ruby Book Club. This is the Week6 of the Summer reading sprint. So if you dont have plans this is a best way to immerse yourself in Ruby Language. The book is available for free online. You will need Ruby and Rails installed on your computer and a terminal to work on this sprint. But if you didnt get them installed you can do it using the instructions http://installfest.railsbridge.org/installfest/

Beginners can start the install process:

http://installfest.railsbridge.org/installfest/

Beginner tutorials:

http://tryruby.org/ and http://www.codecademy.com/tracks/ruby

Intermediate:

Can work through tutorials like Learn to Programhttp://rubykoans.com/ and http://ruby.railstutorial.org/

Advanced:

Let's work on the TicTacToe sprint! You'll be filling in the skeleton version of the app. Working directly with Rspec, Pry, MVC and gaining of deeper understanding of object orientation. Get it hereand find the documentation for it here. Try forking before showing up!

This event is exclusively open to people who identify as female

    hmmm. I don't think i will be able to make it tonight, but the option to change an rsvp seems to be nonexistent right now.
